Gold standard 100% whey food comparison image


Gold Standard Whey Protein surpasses all its competitors taking the mantle as the highest selling protein in the world.



Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein 2.27kg hits the heights when it comes to sales as it offers a massive range of flavours to suit every taste.



Whey protein has been identified a the highest quality protein source, able to stimulate muscle protein synthesis extremely well 1. Muscle protein synthesis is the anabolic pathway of the body, assisting in recovery from all types of physical activities, such as long distance running and heavy weight lifting. In addition, Gold Standard Whey Protein contains all nine of the essential amino acids in abundance, as naturally found within the protein structure, which have important ramifications for general health 2.

The quality of the protein is not to be underestimated as well, as whey protein do differ in where they are sourced, and the health of the cows from which the milk is derived. All ON Whey Protein comes from Glanbia and the green pastures of Ireland. It has been demonstrated that, even though this is a low fat product, the fatty acid balance in pasture fed cows versus conventionally fed is significantly different.



Pasture fed cows milk contains more Omega 3 and CLA than conventionally fed, which is a good thing 3. After all, most people do not consume enough anti-inflammatory Omega 3s or enough naturally occurring CLA, which promotes fat burning and muscle building. No bones about it, pasture fed cows produce the purest form of whey protein. 



Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein is also high in bioactive compounds such as Immunoglobulin G, Lactoferrin and Bovin Serum, Gold Standard Whey Protein also supports the immune system and intestinal health important for hard trainers so they can keep performing and also to allow effective absorption of amino acids for effective muscle growth.



Further enhanced with pre-digested Whey Peptides for ultra-fast absorption, Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein is the award winning ultrafiltered whey protein that gives 100% nutritional support to any athlete looking to increase lean muscle growth, improve muscular adaptation and improve recovery time.
